recovery. in terms of health care costs related to the aca, while most business leaders that we have spoken to have said is they understand we needed to do something. small-business owners are impacted disproportionately by rising health-care costs. the current health c arpl work for them less well thanlarg companies because they don't have buying power. if you look at some of the reforms, you see a number of efforts to try to reduce costs for small businesses to, like creating exchanges, for example. small in 2011, small businesses paid 25% more for insurance than large companies. the exchange is meant to help small business. you are right. with the new regulations set to take effect in a couple of years, it is another reason to be careful and protect small businesses from tax increases. what the obama people will tell you is that they have cut taxes for small business 17 times and 90% of the small businesses in america would not be effected by higher individual taxes. host: here is "the miami herald" this morning. pennsylvania. independent caller. caller: he said it earlier when they go t
to bring the a.c.a. back into the negotiations for some is wild read. you still see the same kind of intrancy generals. wait a minute, who won this election? this mandate is mine. i earned it. 3% i won a national vote by 3% which in modern times is a landslide. we won seats in the senate. we took seats in the house. >> the house, if there were no part in the jerry man derring, that's as important as energizing the base and getting some move in social media. >> at the same time, they have to get a number of votes. they need 218 votes in the house. part of the art of washington politics is giving your opponents something to run against you in the next election. >> what they have to give house republicans is something they can take back to these very conservative jerry man der districts. it is not as if most people are running in swing districts. most are running in hard right districts where they can get a primary challenge. the reason you are hearing boehner ask what are you going to cut? they want the president to put some ideas on the table. all of the bad ideas, they are all com
for whenever subsidies they been entitled to. it'd different story for the medicaid expansion. the aca specifically does limit eligibility for the new medicaid coverage to people under 65. presumably there would need to be a statutory change if medicare eligibility age was raised to 67 or even higher, that provision would need to change to enable people to qualify for the medicaid expansion. in states that don't expand medicaid those adults with incomes between 100%, and 138% of poverty would be eligible for subsidies in the exchange and they would be subject to the mandate, but for people with income below 100% of poverty in states that do not opt for medicaid expansion, they would not be eligible for medicaid or subsidies because the law limits those to people with incomes 100% or above. having spoken to my colleagues at kaiser about this issue who followed this issue more carefully than i have, they said cygnus -- secretary cbs has said these individuals would not be subject to mandate penalties if they lived in a state that did not expand medicaid and selling this coverage gap. >>

will lose access to critical health services covered in the a.c.a. like cancer screenings. and the last step is to go after another favorite g.o.p. target and that's social security. house republicans have only one to protect and that's the wealthiest americans. it couldn't be more obvious. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the gentleman from wisconsin. mr. ryan: i yield three minutes to the chairman of the commerce committee, mr. upton. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan. up up -- mr. upton: we work to get our $16 trillion national debt under control and we put us on a path towards a more solemn fiscal future. the spending reduction act of 2012, we identified key areas to reduce spending to replace the sequester and without this thoughtful balanced package of savings, in two weeks, the sequester is going to cut discretionary spending while shielding the lion's share of the government's budget from reduction. critical priorities such as important cancer research at the n.i.h. and review of budget

of 2010, the congressional budget office was projecting out some savings because of the a.c.a. but they were figuring about 4% per capita growth, again as you pointed out this chart now shows we're down to 2%. so they've been revising their estimates over the last two years and the net savings, the recalculation just in the last two years has been hundreds of billions of dollars of lower expenditure than they had first thought was going to be the case. when you compare that magnitude of savings with, for example, raising the eligibility age to 67, i mean, they're dwarfed. it is really just a small portion of what efficiencies in the system are capable of producing. and the fact of the matter is that raising the eligibility age, i mean, there's no free lunch. the fact is that even though these are people that willing challenged in the private insurance market, 65 and 66 are still the healthiest population within the medicare pool. so the ones who remain in medicare, their part b premiums are going to go up and that's not just me saying it, it's the keiser family foundation who
